  • Speakers Make a Greater Difference in Tone Than Tubes

    So what's all the corksniffery about?

  • #2
    Speakers, pickups, strings, tubes, tonewoods, cab woods can all affect tone.

    I never had the tone i wanted til i got a Les Paul & old Marshall, that was more than half the battle.
    I endorse Laura & Valve Queen tubes, you should too.Marshall, Gibson, Fender, Charvel/Jackson."I'm happy to pay my tech $40 bucks to take the Zap for me."One kick-butt deal with johnpace2 Dave Friedman of RACKSYSTEMS is a genius.After the Firebird X, i'm quite convinced Henry Juszkiewicz is crazy.Member of the JMP Hall of Fame.

        Here we go.

        Assuming your a good player.........gear has a factor regardless.

        I will say the average bar patron doesn't know the difference between a Peavey and an SLO.

          I try out different tube brands but I always find myself coming back to the same ones.

          I still haven't found current production 12AX7's I'm really happy with though, but current production power tubes seem just fine (I like JJ EL84's and Groove Tubes 6CA7S's for EL34 amps).

          I always seem to go for the same speaker too (I'm a big fan of G12H-30's), although I have to say that I like V30's just fine once you get them up to a decent volume and EQ your amp to avoid the upper mid spike.

            Speaker and cabs make a difference...maybe not greater but certianly significant...being a bit of speaker slut, have an alnico and ceramic 8's, a smooth and ribbed ceramic 10's and a smooth alnico, a ribbed alnico and a ribbed ceramic 12's that I try in different configured open, closed, detuned cabs. Yesterday this no name $10 12" alnico from the 70's that I happened to team up with my modeller to tube amp rig...and its sounds waaaay better than the $200 weber... perhaps its a FR speaker but its staying with the modeller/tube basement rig.
